Construction is essentially the integration of physical materials according to a plan. Efficiently orchestrating the processes that deliver the finished project is the role of the General Contractor. This is no easy task, keeping the project on time, on budget and on spec.
Michael Sylvester is a writer who lives in both Los Angeles and an aisle seat, preferably in the exit row. On his pilgrimage to Dan Rockhill's Studio 804 in Lawrence, Kansas, to see its fabled prefab projects, he was feeling a bit self conscious being a Left Coast vegetarian in steak country. "In addition to their cool prefabs, there was a great vegan restaurant downtown. Who doesn't enjoy mixing good architecture with good food?" he says.
